Inmate Accounts & Commissary
Snohomish County Corrections provides commissary services for the inmates incarcerated at our facility. The commissary provides the opportunity for inmates to purchase personal hygiene items, snacks, and some clothing items. Inmates pay for these items using monies deposited to their account. Inmates may also incur debt (i.e. medical, haircuts, etc.). If money is deposited to an inmate’s account that has debt, 60% is applied to the debt and 40% is applied to the inmate’s account.
The proceeds from the commissary are deposited in an Inmate Welfare Fund. This fund is used to purchase recreational items for use by the inmates. It also pays for televisions, cable services, newspapers, etc. Salaries for staff that manage the commissary are also paid for out of this fund.
Inmates may order commissary once a week. Orders are placed each Saturday and processed on Sunday morning. Money must be placed in an inmate’s account by 11:00 pm on Saturday for the inmate to receive commissary the following week. Commissary delivery also occurs one day each week, Tuesday through Friday, depending on the inmate’s housing unit (if an inmate’s housing unit changes, the day in which their commissary is delivered may also change).
Family and friends may order hygiene items, underwear and writing supplies for an inmate online or by calling 800-546-6283. Customer Service hours are Monday-Friday, 5:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.. Items ordered online will be delivered the next week during regular commissary delivery.
To put money in an inmate’s account you may do so by phone, internet, through the U.S. mail or directly at the inmate accounts window in the reception area at the jail. For deposits made by phone, internet or mail you will need to know the inmate’s CIN # or global subject number which can be found in the Jail Registry.
* For credit/debit card purchases and/or deposits: Additional service fees may be assessed by your individual bank card issuer. (Your agreement with your card issuer governs use of your card and you must refer to that agreement to ascertain your rights and liabilities as a cardholder, which may include a “cash advance” fee.)
Deposits by Phone / Internet
You may put money on an inmate’s account via the phone or internet. This service is called Access Secure Deposits and is available 24 hours a day. To access this service you may either call 866-345-1884 or visit the Access Corrections website. Access Secure Deposits allows you to make debit or credit card deposits that automatically post to an inmate’s account within 5 minutes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Access Secure Deposits charges a non-refundable fee for this service which is paid by the customer. Access Secure Deposits’ online form requires that the inmates 7-digit CIN number or global subject number be provided; this number can be found in the Jail Registry.
Deposits by Mail
Payments must be made in the form of a money order or cashier’s check. Personal checks are not accepted and sending cash through the mail is discouraged. Money orders and cashier’s checks must be made payable to Snohomish County Corrections, or SCC. Please do not put the inmate’s name on the payable line of the money order / cashier’s check; we will be unable to cash it. Instead, please clearly write the inmate name and global subject number in the Note or Memo field on the money order / cashier’s check so that the funds may be posted correctly. Please address funds to:
